2018 Ford GT Supercar Review

November 18, 2016

The 2018 Ford GT Supercar is expected to be Fords most expensive and the best model ever. The second generation supercar model was revealed in the 2015 North America International Auto show in Detroit. A high percentage of those in attendance admired it compared to the other vehicles.

It will have an ultra-high performance that will serve as the main technology showcase with top EcoBoost performance, lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum construction and excellent aerodynamics.

2018 Ford GT Supercar External Design:

The blue oval supercar’s general weight will be minimized. And the developers have approximated the target weight to approximately 2800 pounds.

The central tub, as well as the parts of the body, will be constructed from carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is one of the world’s strongest materials. It will enable an ultra-stiff foundation for the chassis components and create a lighter package for the improved dynamic performance as well as efficiency.

To improve aerodynamics, every slope as well as shape will be designed in a way that it minimizes drag and optimize the down force. The 2018 Ford GT Supercar will have a teardrop shape, the aircraft inspired fuselage and visibility enhanced curved windshield.

The lighter materials used in body construction will enable outstanding acceleration, improved safety, efficiency and excellent braking capabilities, but will have to be handled with improved care. The new 2018 Ford GT Supercar will feature a race-ready cockpit, two-door coupe body shell and will generally be designed with a racing style. It will indeed be an excellent car.

It will also feature a pushrod activated suspension set up that will result in unique relative motion between the car’s body and the wheels.

2018 Ford GT Supercar Internal Design:

The interior design will also receive carbon fiber innovation. The 2018 Ford GT Supercar cabin will be narrow and the driver and their passengers will have to sit shoulder to shoulder in the seats which will also be fixed directly in the tub to promote safety. For the users to be able to access the two-seat cockpit, they will have to swing the doors up. The steering and the pedals will be adjustable.

2018 Ford GT Supercar Engine Options:

The powerful 3.5-liter twin turbo V6 EcoBoost engine will be installed. The mid-mounted engine will be able to produce approximately 650 horsepower and it will be backed by the Getrag seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The power will be transmitted to the rear wheels of the 2018 Ford GT.

In order to improve the engine’s response, it will feature a new direct port for dual fuel injection and a low friction roller/finger/follower valve train.

Fuel Economy:

The extensive use of lightweight materials in the body construction will contribute to the reduction of the general weight of the car which will eventually contribute to an improvement in fuel economy. The engine used will also improve performance and boost fuel economy.

2018 Ford Focus Release Date, USA

May 28, 2015

The design of the 2018 Ford Focus is very impressive. This family car is in fact designed to look far better than the previous model. The new Ford Focus is to arrive in markets in North America soon. It is a much-anticipated car that promises much including high performance and a nice and attractive body design.

2018 Ford Focus Engine Specs

Under the hood, a turbocharged engine that is capable of producing 305 horsepower will power the new 2018 Ford Focus. Power will be transmitted to front wheels with the help of the Ford RevoKnuckle, which is designed to maintain high torque. It is also expected that a 2.3-liter 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine that is also capable of producing 310 horsepower and 320 pound feet of torque will power the Ford Focus. This is impressive horsepower that will translate into superior performance. This engine is capable of producing enough horsepower to ensure a very comfortable ride on all terrains.

2018 Ford Focus side

Some reports suggest that a 2.0-liter engine capable of producing 160 horsepower and 145 pound feet of torque will power the Focus. It will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Another engine option that may be offered is the EcoBoost 1-liter engine that produces 123 horsepower and 148 pound feet of torque. This engine delivers 32 miles per gallon in the city and 45 miles per gallon on the highway and it is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. This 1-liter engine produces sufficient power and is quite fuel-efficient at the same time.

2018 Ford Focus Exterior and Interior

The design of the new 2018 Ford Focus is exceptional and stylish. The use of high tech technology when combined with superior design ensures a great driving experience. For higher power, Ford is offering an all-wheel drive version, which however is not the same as the one used in the Fusion and MKZ. Thanks to the front and back torque, the Focus handles exceptionally well.

2018 Ford Focus interior

The 2018 Ford Focus also rides on large sized wheels and tires and has nice spoilers that help to enhance the design of the vehicle even more. When the Focus was seen, it was heavily camouflaged but we did manage to notice a few things about the exterior. For one, the grille has a large sized bar in it and though Ford has done an excellent job of keeping the exteriors concealed from prying eyes, we can say that the styling is quite similar to a rally car styling such as is found in the Subaru STi and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. We think that Ford will introduce large sized fender flares and the spoiler at the back will also be quite big. This car is designed to look like a hatchback and it is also quite spacious at the same time having 23.8 cubic feet of space behind the seats at the back.

2018 Ford Focus Release Date and Price

The 2018 Ford Focus should be introduced into the USA markets in the beginning of 2016 or even towards the end of 2015. Everyone is eagerly waiting for this car, which will be a very popular one. Since Ford has not provided any pricing information it is hard to say what the Focus will cost. However, one thing for sure and that is that the Focus will use some very advanced technologies and that in itself should help to make this car a very popular one.

It has been predicted by the American automotive giant to be a vehicle that will gain an increased amount of favor within the hearts of consumers. Additionally, Ford will deliver a number of advanced technology within the cabin of the forthcoming F-150. At the very least, the vehicle will be extremely interesting.

The new 2018 Ford F-150 has been constructed with a greater amount of high strength steel as compared to its predecessor.

2018 Ford F-150 Engine Specs

The power for the latest generation of the F-150 Raptor vehicle will say farewell to the 6.2 liter V-8 option while making room for a new EcoBoost 3.5 liter V-6 engine.

Also, the new Raptor will sit atop 17 inch wheels that are six inches wider than those of the more conventional F-150 vehicles within the current lineup. The exterior of the vehicle utilizes military grade aluminum alloy in regards to its exterior.

2017, Lincoln

2017 Lincoln MKZ Concept

May 27, 2015

Although when we got a chance to see the 2017 Lincoln MKZ, it was heavily covered in camouflage, there were certain things about the vehicle that were immediately apparent. The wheels and everything between them do not seem to have been changed. The front fascia on the other hand and headlights as well as hood seem to have been tweaked slightly to make the mid-sized luxury sedan conform with the looks of the recently released Continental, which was seen as a concept at the New York Auto Show this year.

2017 Lincoln MKZ front

2017 Lincoln MKZ Exterior and Interior

The new 2017 Lincoln MKZ certainly has a lot of flounce and it also has its own design features that help to set the vehicle apart. Gone is the grille design that has been seen on virtually every other Lincoln model. In addition, Lincoln also seems to be thinking about changing the face of the MKZ to make it look more like that of the Continental. The time is certainly right for the automaker to refresh its MKZ. We know that the MKZ will continue to have the same underpinnings as before. Also, the headlights will not look the same as on earlier models. Gone is the sweeping look and the headlights are also not as tapered as earlier models. LEDs are used in the headlights and the lower fascia does not have as many features as before. The taillights do not seem to have been changed though the exhaust pipes are not of the same shape as before. Overall, the tail looks pretty similar to that of earlier models. The most distinguishing features of the tail are its taillights.

2017 Lincoln MKZ interior

The wheels of the MKZ also seem to be different. Inside the cabin, one of the major changes to the interiors should involve the introduction of physical buttons instead of the capacitive controls. In addition, Ford will also offer an excellent infotainment system.

2017 Lincoln MKZ Engine Specs

Under the hood, things may become slightly tricky. A 2.0-liter 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine powers the current model. A 4-cylinder hybrid engine is also offered. Both these engines have already been used on the Ford Fusion. A third engine option will also be available. This is the more powerful 3.7-liter V6 engine. To make the 2017 Lincoln MKZ more distinctive Lincoln may think about transitioning the MKZ by changing the optional V6 engine for a more powerful 2.3-liter engine that is capable of producing 285 horsepower. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine delivers better fuel economy and at the same time it also produces sufficient power. With Ford introducing both the 9-speed and 10-speed transmissions soon, we expect that the new MKZ will also be using these transmissions.

2017 Lincoln MKZ rear

The 2017 Lincoln MKZ faces competition from the Acura TLX and the Audi A4 as well as the BMW 3-series. Other competitors include the Lexus ES350 and the Mercedes Benz C-Class.

2017 Lincoln MKZ Release Date and Price

We don’t expect the 2017 Lincoln MKZ to arrive before the latest Continental, which will be introduced sometime next year. Most probably, the MKZ will make its debut at that 2016 Detroit Auto Show in January 2016. A few months later the car should be available in dealerships. The base price of the MKZ should remain pretty much the same as for the current model. So, don’t expect the price to be less than 36,000 dollars for the base model.

2016 Ford Raptor Shelby Price

May 26, 2015

The 2016 Ford Raptor Shelby is a beast of a truck. The first Ford Raptor was introduced to buyers about five years ago. During all these years the Raptor has proved itself to be not only a truck that is very stout but also it is also very tenacious at the same time. If you love trucks then you will certainly be interested in knowing more about the new Ford Raptor Shelby, which recently was spied being tested.

2016 Ford Raptor Shelby Exterior and Interior

Spy pictures of the new 2016 Ford Raptor Shelby suggest that it would have the same kind of body as the earlier 2015 model. The body will most probably be built from aluminum, which will no doubt do much to improve the fuel efficiency of the new Shelby. Ford may continue with the same grille as the earlier model and the hood bends and bulges will also be the same as in the earlier model. The headlights will be more powerful and they will help to considerably improve visibility in the dark.

2016 Ford Raptor Shelby interior

We could not look into the interior of the cabin so it is hard to say what is inside. However, if we go by what was included in earlier models we can safely say that the interiors of the new 2016 Ford Raptor Shelby will be much improved. For example, the quality of materials used in the cabin will be of a very high quality and everything inside the cabin will be designed to provide maximum comfort. Needless to say, there will be plenty of space within the cabin to accommodate passengers. We also think that several high quality tech gadgets will be offered.

2016 Ford Raptor Shelby Engine Specs

People who managed to get up close to the new 2016 Ford Raptor Shelby say that the vehicle would be powered by a powerful EcoBoost V6 engine that is capable of churning out 365 ponies at 5000 RPM and 420 pound feet of torque at 2500 RPM. Ford will probably discard the earlier 6.2-liter V8 engine and use the EcoBoost in its place. The engine will in all probability be mated to a brand new 10-speed transmission.

2016 Ford Raptor Shelby Release Date and Price

Ford has yet to confirm the release date of the new 2016 Ford Raptor Shelby. Forecasters believe that the earliest that the Shelby will be offered to the public is toward the end of this year. The company has also not provided any real details about how much the vehicle is going to cost but estimates have it that the new Shelby will probably cost about the same as the F-150 Raptor costs. So, expect to pay about 50,000 dollars for the base model.

2016 Ford Raptor Shelby rear

For this price, you will get to own a car that has nice exteriors. In fact, this is an out-and-out muscle car that looks very tough and different from the earlier model Raptor. Ford plans to reintroduce the Shelby and this will certainly please truck enthusiasts. This is a tough, smart and very capable truck that offers the ultimate in off-road performance. Thanks to its aluminum body, the new Shelby also weighs about five hundred pounds less than the earlier model. The lower weight translates into better execution as well as capacity.

The new model is based on the T6 platform that has earlier also been used on the Mazda BT-50. Those who are not familiar with the Ford Ranger will be glad to know that the new models; dimensions and specifications are pretty much the same as those of the F-150 pickup trucks that have made Ford such a popular car manufacturer.

The new Wildtrak will be sold in as many as 180 different markets in the world. This shows that this particular model is the best pickup truck in its category.

The 2016 Ford Ranger Wildtrak competes with the likes of the VW Amarok and Isuzu D-MAX. However, both these pickup trucks are not able to match the Wildtrack in performance and security. The nice thing about the Wildtrack is that it performs exceedingly well and it also offers good fuel economy as well. Best of all, its design is very modern and inside the cabin passengers are treated to a very comfortable and safe ride. The Wildtrak is great to drive on both regular roads as well as on off-road terrains. It is also a very luxurious model that performs way above expectations.

2016 Ford Ranger Wildtrak Engine Specs

The new 2016 Ford Ranger Wildtrak is available in the four-by-four Double Cab pickup configuration.

As for release date of the 2016 Ford Ranger Wildtrak, we expect it to be introduced into the market towards the end of this year. However, it may not be released in all 180 markets at the same time.

2016, Ka

2016 Ford Ka Release Date, Price

May 25, 2015

The design of the new 2016 Ford Ka is not very distinctive. Even so, this fresh city car does promise a lot in the form of high tech features and it also boasts of very low running costs. Though this is still a concept car, it is a semi-production version that will be launched in 2016. Since it was first introduced in 1998, the Ka has already sold over a million units.

2016 Ford Ka front

2016 Ford Ka Design

The 2016 Ford Ka will probably be aimed at buyers in growth markets who not only want more but also expect more. The Ka boasts of sleekness in design and best use of technology. The new 2016 Ford Ka will probably be introduced in the markets of Brazil before being introduced anywhere else. In fact, the vehicle will be constructed in Brazil. The new Ka has a very mature image and it boasts of many interesting features like a wide grille. The headlights at the back are raked and have swooping lines. Even the body looks very appealing.

2016 Ford Ka side

Unlike the previous models, the new 2016 Ford Ka does not look quite so cute. The lines and the styling features are pretty much like those of the latest Fiesta. The grille at the front is very Aston Martin-like. The wheels on the other hand look very much like the wheels on the much-loved Zetec model.

According to Ford, the Ka is large enough to easily accommodate five passengers. This, the company says has been achieved through ingenious packaging and through the use of some very crafty methods. In line with what you get with new cars these days, the new Ka will also offer plenty of technologically advanced features. For example, the Ka is very well connected. It also makes use of an excellent multimedia system that can be controlled through voice commands. Thanks to features like APPLINK, the driver can continue to concentrate on driving while the app activates various smartphone applications on its own.

2016 Ford Ka interior

2016 Ford Ka Engine Specs

At this time, Ford has not provided any details regarding the kind of engine that will be used to power up the new Ka. We don’t expect the company to offer a diesel engine because its main competitors are not doing that. The plain truth is that a diesel engine in a small car is not a good option. However, Ford will in all probability use a 1-liter EcoBoost engine. This turbocharged 3-cylinder engine not only delivers very good fuel economy and low carbon dioxide emissions. The main competitors to the new Ka are the VW Up, Seat Mii and Skoda Citigo. As Ford has not provided any technical information or details about the engine that is to power up the Ka, it has nevertheless made it very clear that the engine will provide best in class fuel economy. In all probability, the Ka will make use of the same platform as is used in the Ford Figo.

2016 Ford Edge Sport Review, Price

May 21, 2015

The 2016 Ford Edge Sport is a new SUV from Ford. This mid-sized crossover vehicle was first introduced into the market in 2006. After many changes, the new Ford Edge Sport has been completely redesigned and will boast of many important changes. Overall, however, the new Ford Edge Sport is more or less the same as the earlier model.

2016 Ford Edge Sport front

2016 Ford Edge Sport Engine Specs

The new Ford Edge Sport will have three different engine options. The Standard SE and SEL as well as Titanium models will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that makes 245 horsepower and 275 pound feet of torque. These trims are also available with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that is capable of delivering 265 horsepower. Finally, the new Ford Edge Sport comes with a very powerful powertrain consisting of a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 315 horsepower and 350 pound feet of torque. Buyers have the option of ordering a front-wheel drive model or an all-wheel drive model. All the engines are coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The new Ford Edge Sport offers solid fuel economy figures though these are not best in class. The four-cylinder engine delivers 20 miles per gallon in the city and 30 miles per gallon on the highway. The V6 engine on the other hand delivers 18 mpg in the city and 26 miles per gallon on the highway. The more powerful 2.7-liter engine should offer similarly impressive fuel economy figures.

2016 Ford Edge Sport Exterior and Interior Redesign

The first thing that strikes you about the 2016 Ford Edge Sport is its astonishing looks. The grille is very impressive and is slightly different than the regular Aston Martin-like grille of a majority of Ford vehicles. As for body shape and design, the Edge Sport looks quite like the Grand Cherokee, but this is only apparent if you look very closely at both vehicles. There is also a large sized tailgate at the back.

2016 Ford Edge Sport rear

The interiors of the 2016 Ford Edge Sport have a distinctive Ford look. Nothing new has been done to the dashboard and to the instrument panel. However, the touchscreen display has been placed over the dashboard. Above the touchscreen there is a covered cubicle in which a number of controls have been placed. The seats are both leathered as well as heated and this is a standard feature in the Ford Edge Sport Titanium model.

The Sport model offers a number of refinements including a hands-free tailgate and you only need to push a button to get the engine running. There is a nice premium quality audio system and there is some impressive safety features offered like forward-collision warning and parking assist as well as vertical parking.
